I believe I know the answer to this but can a Mac and PC access the same hard drive?

I go on vacation with a PC laptop and use it to back my photos up. When I get home can I plug that same hard drive into the Mac and pull the files off?

I'm guessing no but thought I would ask.

Yes the MAC can read/write FAT32 and read NTFS. And there are programs that can let it read/write NTFS as well.

Thanks I had seen that doing a google search but didn't know the limits or how well it worked.
